On any given day modern slavery is happening in urban business districts, suburban strip malls, and rural towns across the US. You are likely to come across human trafficking on a daily basis without even knowing it, the Polaris Project writes:
Join us for a documentary screening and conversation about human trafficking in public, widely transited, commercial front venues. Experts in the human trafficking field will discuss what you can do to take a stand and encourage local elected officials to prioritize the eradication of human trafficking. Come learn how to make a real difference in YOUR community and hear about the strategies task forces and organizations are using to combat modern slavery.
A screening of the documentary Save My Seoul, followed by a panel discussion about the current realities of human trafficking in massage parlors across the United States.
